Residents of a Norfolk village are being asked if their gardens can be dug up by experts from the archaeological television programme Time Team.
Next July archaeologists Dr Carenza Lewis and Paul Blinkhorn will be excavating up to a dozen gardens in Acle to unearth the community's rich history.
This summer both Time Team regulars visited the Acle to dug test pits in gardens as part of a community history event.
With the help of local school children they found many remains dating from Roman times to the second world war.
This year's excavation helped prove a new theory that parts of East Anglia have been continually inhabited for many centuries.
It is hoped that the return visit of Dr Lewis and Mr Blinkhorn will discover further proof of Acle's past.
